THE CITY OF EDINBURGH COUNCIL: Transforming the way we deliver services to our city.

Edinburgh is known as Scotland's capital city, but also its festival, business and cultural capital too. The city is home to the Scottish Parliament, and some of the most recognisable landmarks in Europe; from the medieval Old Town to the elegant Georgian New Town.

And here at The City of Edinburgh Council we're at the heart of that city. With nearly four million domestic and overseas visitors, and almost half a million people calling Edinburgh home, it has never been more important for us as a council to make sure our city is a great place to live, work and enjoy.

About us

Employing approximately 16,000 people, our team is as diverse as the services we provide, from refuse collection to museums and galleries, parks to planning, schools to social care. Services that matter and that people rely on. Services that make this city a great place to live in and visit. And services we want our people to be proud of delivering.

Like all councils we’re constrained by budgets and challenges but we’ve embarked on an extensive transformation programme that we feel will help us achieve our vision, allow us to give greater focus on customers and communities and get the best value we can from the resources we have.

Everyone’s got a talent

Would you like an opportunity to turn your passion, interest or simply ‘what you’re good at’ in to your career?

Are you always thinking about other people, willing to help and offering support? Then take a look at some of our Social Care opportunities and train towards a nationally recognised qualification. Maybe you’ve brought up your family and would relish the challenge of working with children again? Then a career as a Pupil Support Assistant may be just the job and the first step to becoming a teacher!

Or maybe you’ve only ever worked in the private sector? Perhaps your ex-Armed forces and wondering what we have to offer? We have vacancies for Business, and Development Managers, Engineers, Electricians, Solicitors, Retail Assistants, Park Rangers, Waste and Recycling Drivers and lots more changing daily.

Take a look at the vacancies on offer and see if there’s something matching your skills and experience. We have rewarding opportunities at all levels, for the right candidates.
